This March we had some friends from Spain come to Canada and we had to show them Rogers Pass in the Selkirk Range. With sun in the forecast we thought Illecillewaet would be a good introduction since we could go as far as their Tapas filled legs could take them, or just lap the lower trees. Most opted to climb to 2430m. A mere 1200m climb on day one of touring. Johnny Smoke joined us on this tour.
What’s impressive is that, for some of them, this doubled the amount of elevation they had previously ever climbed. Not bad for a bunch of desk-jockeys fighting jet-lag!!
The Spaniards were – Luis Miguel, Christian, Miguelo, Paco, Antonio, Fritz, Dirk and Miguel. Our destination today was Perley Rock.
No photos at the car as it was -20 today! Luckily it warmed up and luckily we found mature powder
